#10 Bulletin Board

 Select a food item students can sample in class. [I have done this activity with apples, popcorn, and Hershey kisses.] As students eat the food, have them complete a chart with rich describing words (adjectives) like the one below.


See Hear Feel Taste Sound

Next provide students with one or two paper cut-outs of the food item you have selected for this activity. Each student will select the best word(s) from his/her chart and write one word per cut-out.

The cut-outs will then be arranged on the bulletin board in an attractive manner. For example apples may spill out of a basket. Popcorn may be in a red and white stripped box like those provided at the movie theater.
